Maoist rebels kill 75 troops in eastern India

• AP
Maoist rebels launched a series of devastating attacks Tuesday on paramilitary forces patrolling the forests of eastern India, killing at least 75 troops in the deadliest strike against the government in the 43-year insurgency.

The attack, which came amid a major Indian offensive aimed at crushing the Maoists, fueled concerns the government is sending poorly trained forces to the front lines to battle the raging insurgency.
